Carbaryl
48% 50%SC   85%WP
INTRODUCTION
 
Carbaryl is a wide-spectrum carbamate insecticide which controls over 100 species of insects on citrus, fruit, cotton, forests, lawns, nuts, ornamentals, shade trees, and other crops, as well as on poultry, livestock and pets. It is also used as a molluscicide and an acaricide. Carbaryl works whether it is ingested into the stomach of the pest or absorbed through direct contact. The chemical name for Carbaryl is 1- naphthol N-methylcarbamate.
 
Carbaryl is formulated as a solid which varies from colorless to white to gray, depending on the purity of the compound. The crystals are odorless. This chemical is stable to heat, light and acids under storage conditions. It is non-corrosive to metals, packaging materials, or application equipment. It is found in all types of formulations including baits, dusts, wettable powder, granules, oil, molassas, aqueous dispersions and suspensions.
 
Carbaryl is a general use pesticide.
 
ACUTE TOXICITY
 
Carbaryl is moderately to very toxic, and is labeled with a WARNING signal word. It can produce adverse effects in humans by skin contact, inhalation or ingestion. The symptoms of acute toxicity are typical of the other carbamates. Direct contact of the skin or eyes with moderate levels of this pesticide can cause burns. Inhalation or ingestion of very large amounts can be toxic to the nervous and respiratory systems resulting in nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea and excessive salivation. Other symptoms at high doses include sweating, blurring of vision, incoordination, and convulsions. About fifty cases of occupational or accidental illnesses due to exposure to Carbaryl have been reported, but no fatalities have been documented. The only documented fatality from Carbaryl was through intentional ingestion.
 
The oral LD50 of Carbaryl ranges from 250 mg/kg to 850 mg/kg for rats, and from 100 mg/kg to 650 mg/kg for mice. The inhalation LC50 for rats is 0,005 to 0.023 mg/kg. Low doses can cause minor skin and eye irritation in rabbits, whose dermal LD50 has been measured at greater than 2,000 mg/kg. Technical Carbaryl has little potential for skin or eye irritation.
 
Occupational workers have the greatest potential for exposure through inhalation or through the skin. The general public's highest risk of exposure is through ingestion of contaminated food.
 
CHRONIC TOXICITY
 
Athough it may cause minor skin and eye irritation, Carbaryl does not appear to be a significant chronic health risk at or below occupational levels. Male volunteers who consumed low doses of Carbaryl for six weeks did not show symptoms, but tests indicated slight changes in their body chemistry .
